On Monday, Bill Cosby resigned from Temple University's board of trustees, a spot he's held for 32 years, amid mounting sexual assault allegations.

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Cosby stepped down of his own volition.

"I have always been proud of my association with Temple University," Cosby said in a statement, released by the university. "I have always wanted to do what would be in the best interests of the university and its students. As a result, I have tendered my resignation from the Temple University Board of Trustees."

Let's be honest, this statement sounds like the result of a back room conversation a la Henry, Jimmy and Pauly in GoodFellas, except instead of 'You gotta go home' the chat went more like 'You gotta get the fuck out.'

Temple follows University of Massachusetts at Amherst which cut ties with Cosby last week. Spelman College, another institution that's received millions from the Cosby's, has yet to decide their next steps—outside of comparing Cosby's current situation to Hillary Clinton's first presidential campaign because … I don't know either.
